Kimberly Ratcliff manages Caney Creek Ranch, a diversified ranch in
east central Texas, started by her parents. She joined the ranch in 2007 after leaving her job with Bloomberg as a branding specialist. In addition to managing Caney Creek, Ratcliff also owns Farm to Freezer Beef, a locally owned, family-run business that offers fresh, wholesome beef direct from east Texas ranches. They provide the highest quality ranch-direct beef possible, in a simple, convenient, and responsible manner.

The organization promotes agriculture at the local level and holds educational meetings for its members. The 100 Ranchers primary mission is to unite production agriculture producers by strengthening and promoting agriculture.
